A moonshiner makes the error of filling a glass jar to the brim and capping it tightly. The moonshine expands more than the glass when it warms up, in such a way that the volume increases by 0.6% (that is, ΔV/V0 = 6 ✕ 10-3) relative to the space available. Calculate the force exerted by the moonshine per square centimeter if the bulk modulus is 1.8 ✕ 109 N/m2, assuming the jar does not break.

N/cm2 ????
